Remember Pass: Pull, Aim, Squeeze, Sweep

The York Daily Record’s Donna Mandl demonstrates that she learned the lessons of how to use a fire extinguisher.

A dozen or more staff members at the York Daily Record/Sunday News and the York Newspaper Co. soaked in some fire extinguisher training recently.

West Manchester Fire Department officials provided an overview of the different types of fires in homes and business. And they passed on the fire extinguisher mantra PASS – Pull, Aim, Squeeze, Sweep – that sticks with you.

Good stuff. And it also gave our journalists a chance to chat with West Manchester Township Fire Chief David Nichols.

That was a two-fer, an hour well spent.

Remember: PASS – Pull, Aim, Squeeze, Sweep.
